Information Collection and Use
Mind Leap Technology collects information from our users at several different points on our website. Mind Leap Technology is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways other than as disclosed in this statement.
Mind Leap Technology may deposit cookies on users’ hard drives. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. By setting a cookie on our site, a user does not have to log in a password more than once and saves time while on our site. Users who reject the cookie may still use Mind Leap Technology, but they may be limited in some areas of our site.
Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience. Some of the information about how our users experience our site, such as page views and specific pages visited, is logged by a third-party marketing company on our behalf, using cookies.
Mind Leap Technology may work with third-party companies to serve ads when you visit www.MindLeapTech.com. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to www.MindLeapTech.com in order to provide advertisements on www.MindLeapTech.com, other websites and other forms of media about goods and services that may be of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, please submit an inquiry via the Contact Us page at www.MindLeapTech.com.
We may use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movement and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We share aggregated demographic information with our partners and sponsors. This is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
We use third-party vendors to provide services on the website, such as sending email messages to subscribers. The information that a user submits on the site will be provided to our vendor so that we may send Mind Leap Technology communications to users who have ‘opted in’ to receive them. We may share your email address with our partners to offer you programs and services we are jointly promoting. You may opt-out of these communications at any time. Please note, however, if such communications include a link to a vendor’s website or a co-branded partner page and you submit personal information to such vendor’s website or a co-branded partner page, then the privacy policies and practices of such vendor’s website or a co-branded partner page governs the use of your personal information.
We may, however, release information provided by a user to the extent it is required to be disclosed pursuant to a valid order or requirement of a governmental agency or court.
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Mind Leap Technology is not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites. We encourage our users to be aware of when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our RSS feed, newsletter or other email services, we may ask for contact information such as name and email address. This information is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest. If requested, it is optional for the user to provide demographic information (such as child’s grade level or ZIP code) but encouraged so that we can provide more personalized service.
From time to time, Mind Leap Technology may email our newsletter subscribers a request to complete user surveys and/or events that we believe are of interest. This may include promotions from a related third-party sponsor.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletters or other communications can unsubscribe using the tools provided in every email message we send.
From time to time, we request information from users and newsletter subscribers via surveys. Participation in these surveys is voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as ZIP code, grade level). Contact information may be used to notify winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
Tell a Friend
If users elect to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and email address. Mind Leap Technology will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. Mind Leap Technology stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. The friend may contact Mind Leap Technology to request the removal of this information from our database.
Mind Leap Technology has implemented commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. When users submit sensitive information via the website, Mind Leap Technology uses commercially reasonable efforts to protect their information both online and offline. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. Thus, you acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk.
